Meet the Wines of Clearview Vineyard and Winery

Cabernet Franc

Our Cabernet Franc is made from grapes grown in the North Fork of Long Island.  In Bordeaux, this grape is primarily a blending grade adding spiciness and pepper.

Cabernet Franc is one of the more promising red vinifera varieties for New York State. Excellent with a wide range of cheeses and meats, particularly lamb and beef dishes.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is a grape that we buy from the North Fork of Long Island and processed here at our winery. It is the dominant grape in most Bordeaux wines and requires a long growing season.

This is a big bold red wine that is best served with strongly flavored foods to avoid being overpowering. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for about one year, most of that in American Oak and finished in French Oak.

Estate Baco Noir

Estate Baco Noir is grown in our vineyard.  This is a full-bodied wine that has a deep color.

Our Estate Baco Noir is best paired with robust foods like steak or Italian dishes. The wine has a peppery aroma and hint of smoke flavor.

Estate Noriet

Estate Noiret is grown in our vineyard. This hybrid grape was developed by Cornell Research Foundation, Inc. and named in July 2006.  Noriet has the darkest color that I have ever seen and Noir means black in French.  It is a cross of NY33277 x Chancelor x Steuben and produces a deep red color wine with pronounced cherry and berry fruit aromas.  Pairs well with beef and Italian red sauce.

The wine has big, soft tannins with a structure that is complete from the front of the mouth to the back. It is the most difficult grape we grow, due to its vigorous growth, susceptibility to black rot and is a low producer.

Merlot

Merlot is a smoky full body wine with a smooth finish. The grapes come from the North Fork of Long Island, where it is the signature grape and wine. We buy the grapes from the North Fork and produce the wine here at Clearview Vineyard.

Monet

Monet is a Bordeaux style blend that contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It is named after our cat whose picture is on the label of the bottle. The wine is an easy drinking full body red.

Estate Cayuga White

Estate Cayuga White is another hybrid grape developed by Cornell. It is a reliable and productive variety that produces a large crop of quality grapes. This is one of the easier grapes to grow.

It has Riesling-like aromas of apples, peaches, and pears. Ours is a dry, excellent sipping wine. Cayuga white goes well with mild cheeses, fruit and delicate chicken or fish dishes. This is a very popular wine in most New York wineries.

Estate Divinity

Estate Divinity White Wine is a new hybrid from Cornell university which they call NY81.0315.17. Not very appealing, so Karen decided to name it Divinity White. The grape is a cross between Cayuga White and Riesling.

This wine produces a floral and sometimes spicy light Muscat wine. Divinity White has been highly rated for wine quality over the past several years.  It is a perfect wine for us.

Estate Seyval Blanc

Estate Seyval Blanc is a French hybrid grape this is primarily grown in the Finger Lakes and Hudson Valley. It is a great producer and relatively easy to grow. Seyval Blanc typically has aromas of apples, citrus and melons.

Many say that it resembles Sancerre from France’s Loire region, though some barrel fermented versions resemble Fume Blanc. Seyval Blanc is a good complement to grilled shrimp, many sea foods, chicken dishes and salads.

Traminette

Estate Traminette is another Cornell University creation. Traminette’s most dominant parent is Gewurtztraminer, as is immediately obvious by the spicy aroma.

Compared to Gewurs, Traminette is an easy and reliable grape to grow in this region and yields the same basic aroma and taste characteristics. A good Thanksgiving wine and also pairs well with spicy foods like Thai or Mexican.

Vidal Blanc

Estate Vidal Blanc resembles Riesling; the high acid of the grape usually requires some residual sugar for balance. It is characterized by a fruity aroma and delicate taste.

This grape variety grows well in the Hudson River Region and produces and abundant crop. We produce a semi-dry wine from this grape. Excellent grape for producing late harvest and dessert ice wines.
